Listen, you can't flex cardio!

It's not the car you drive, but the size of the arm you hang out the window.




Amen!

CO, do you find that you have enough time to get a good workout in each day after class?



Each night for me is usually around 45 minutes of lifting, a half hour of cardio and two hours of badminton. Yeah, I have time! :)

I don't think I'd want to run behind a big guy who is breaking wind. :P

"Breaking wind" or "breaking the wind" (as in drafting)?

I was talking about drafting, but since I lead the pack for almost half of the 1.5 miles there wasn't a whole lot of drafting to do...

I honestly don't know what my 1.5 mile time is. I have a 5 km run mapped out in my area that I do, but haven't broken that down further to know where I stand. All I know, is that my goal is to run 5 km in 21 minutes, and 10 km in 42 minutes.

RyanV you are now my target for the run. I'm going to do my best to keep up with you. :smirk: Hope that will push me do better on the next P.I.N.

I'm going to do my last minute shopping today to try a new pair of runners. I think it's my old runner that caused my all the shin splint...

Did a 10:35 today, then carried on to nail 3 miles in 24:00. I've already passed the VPD POPAT/Run test, but I don't wanna be the guy who gets to the JIBC with a Krispy Kreme stained track suit on day one. I also like running and want to improve on my time in last year's 10k Sun Run.

Just out of curiosity, what is this "PIN" test that is being spoken of so reverently? It appears that the testing format is a bit different out here, in that the POPAT/Run test is absolute: Hit under 12:00 in the run and then under 4:15 in the POPAT or "thanks for coming out...". I suspect that they might toss you back into be tested right before the official offer to hire, just to make sure you don't squeek past, then fall into the dreaded donut box.

As well, I've got to point out that VPD has the best run test location: You dash around the Brockton Track, then scream down the hill to the Seawall, go maching past the Bannister Statue, around the Lighthouse and then the last big curve along the Seawall to the finish line. Granted, the route must suck during the winter, what with Pacific Ocean waves and gale force winds pounding you, but I ran it on an early summer morning so...

LOL... Yeah, I did my PIN test with an Aux. Buddy of mine, he is 10 years younger, and he ran it in 2 minutes left. He left me in the dust from the start. I had a good laugh about it, after I caught my breath that is...

The PIN testing is the Ontario Police Fitness Pin, an optional test for officers to strive to achieve a high level of personal fitness. Some services require you to pass the test in order to be out on the road....
